Photo of the Day: Baranja, One Region, One Wildlife, One Fence

Total Croatia News

Border relations with Slovenia have been in the media a lot recently, with a particular focus on the wire fence between the two. There has been a volleyball match over it, reports of flooding taken control of parts of it, and activists removing part of it, but as Romulic and Stojcic remind us on January 20, 2016, there is another fence on Croatia’s border which has a longer history and looks more permanent. 

Baranja is a region on Croatia’s north-eastern border with Hungary, a region with rich inter-ethnic history which finds itself on both sides of the border these days. According to Wikipedia:

“Baranya or Baranja (Hungarian: Baranya, pronounced [ˈbɒrɒɲɒ]; Croatian: Baranja, pronounced [bǎraɲa]; German: Branau) is a geographical region between the Danube and the Drava rivers. Its territory is divided between Hungary and Croatia. In Hungary, the region is included into Baranya county, while in Croatia, it is included into Osijek-Baranja county.”

It is also a region where wildlife used to roam freely, as this excellent Romulic and Stojcic video below will show. 

No more. Photo of the Day – The Fence by Romulic and Stojcic. 


Drveće na ovom snimku je granica između Hrvatske i Mađarske u Baranji. Do prije neki dan su tu jeleni migrirali preko granice na dnevnoj bazi, i to ponekad i po par tisuća, u velikim krdima… sada je tu Orbanova bodljikava žica! :(#menivrijedno
